    Default iTunes alternatives

    Hey guys, I'm actually looking more for recommendations to the different kinds of iTunes alternatives, than anything. Just want an alternative that'll allow me to drag and drop to my iPod really easily, without being the memory whore that iTunes is.

    Here's a site with links to some alternatives, though I don't know which's the best overall: http://www.overclockers.com.au/wiki/ITunes_Alternatives

    I heard floola's really good too, though I can't seem to access their site for some reason or other.

    Also, I'm looking for freeware. When I ended up looking at Anapod, it turned out I had to buy it to get the full version, so that's out. T_T

    Thanks in advance.

    iTunes a memory whore?
    My age-old Pentium 4 2.0GHz with 384MB of RAM handles it just fine.

    I guess at first glance, if I had an iPod, I'd go with Yamipod.

    Keep in mind that this is just a iPod manager. It only allows you to transfer songs. After that, for a media player, use whatever the hell you want.

    Foobar2000, winamp free, VUplayer, WMP... whatever you find and like.

    thanks to Silverwmoon!

    It could be that my processor's a celeron, so I notice more slowdowns after I installed itunes.

    In any case, something's eating up my RAM (512 mb, btw), and after removing a few applications that I felt were eating it up and replacing it with less RAM-intensive applications (like removing Realplayer), so far, my only remaining guess is iTunes.

    That's not my main reason for wanting to replace iTunes though. I'd just much rather drag and drop through something like windows explorer than having to play the song(s) through iTunes before being able to move it over.

    This'll also make it easier to take songs from my friends' comps when I don't have my usb stick handy.

    The problem lies in the fact that you don't know how to use Windows and/or iTunes.

    The last comment about making it easier is not true. You can always just go to

    IPOD (or w\e you named it) on "My Computer" or computer for others and get the music files from there.

    Just google "get music from iPod iPod control" That simple. Plus iTunes should be used considering it was made specifically for that.

    iTunes is like the most stupid-friendly piece of software there is.

    Exactly. Most people who buy iPods are noobs at electronics. They only know how to surf the web and go on Myspace. they need something that is that simple. The weird thing is I use to be able to connect my iPod to WMP, not anymore though. I use iTunes it's just much faster than finding another program.

    And everything is drag and drop in iTunes.
    You acquire new music files, drag them in your library and drag them onto your iPod or auto-sync it.
    What's so complicated about that?

    ^You may surprised at how some people find THAT so difficult. Also I hate auto syncing the iPod. I like to manage it on my own.
